Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller has confirmed that Hungary now has enough vaccines to inoculate all healthcare staff against the coronavirus, and 15,000 have already received their first jab.

According to MTI, Müller said general practitioners, pharmacologists and dentists can now receive the vaccine, adding that appointments can be made over the phone or via email. In the next step, workers and residents of elderly care homes will be inoculated, she said. Law enforcement officials directly involved in the protection efforts also have priority in the vaccination plan.
